Read for the salacious details, the outrageous bonuses, and most importantly, to see if you are a fit for this small select group retreat....
It is hard to find a great hotel with an amazing view, quiet, with the right mojo, great food nearby, good swimming, beach out front, all close enough to Athens so that it won't be a superdrag to get off an international flight and then hop on an excruciatingly long ferry ride to get there. Why am I telling you this? Because, for this reason, spots are actually limited by how many rooms we can snag at a boutique (meaning small, gorgeous, and exclusive) hotel. So when I say spots are limited, it's not marketing b.s., it's the logistical truth. So for this reason, we want people who are going to take one of the few precious spots to really love the trip, for it to be a fantastic fit for you and the group so it's a win-win-win for everyone. The goal here is happy-happy.
Part of what will be amazing here is meeting other women who work at a certain level, who understand your pain, and share your challenges, so we really want to handpick this group to mesh well together for maximum learning and fun.

Who this is not for:
Look no hard feelings, this retreat is soul-restoring for leaders, creatives, badasses, and visionaries, which you might very well be by next year's Mojo Trip but for now, it's not a fit.
"I have taught many workshops in Greece and a few in other places and I get asked why Greece? What's so great about Greece that you keep going back there? Simple: Mojo.
The Greeks don't have a word for intuition the same as we do. That's because it's so prevalent in their culture. I have had students tell locals that they were there for an intuition workshop and the locals immediately say "Oh yeah, energy, when you sense stuff, sure that makes sense." Versus back in North America where people are like "What? How do you learn that? What do you mean?" Their very history is soaked in mythology, tales of magic, transformation, and sexual escapades. And the land itself supports that: sexy, dreamy, nurturing, it feels like anything is possible there. This is about more than getting your groove back with some hot Greek guy, it's about getting your soul groove back for yourself, your deeper mojo in order to manifest whatever you dream up on this soul retreat." -Kate
In between leisurely classes, go exploring in town for snacks, shopping, soaking up the culture. Or go hiking amongst sun-soaked pines, each breath sweet and earthy. Or see if you can try every beach the island has to offer before the end of your trip and decide which you love best. Rent a bike or a ATV or moped or be gloriously lazy and grab a cab with some fellow retreaters and new friends. Or curl up and read a book and journal at the hotel's nearest beach or your balcony and be lulled to sleep to the sound of waves.
You can't get more juicygorgeous than this! Yeah, I made it one word! The actual hotel has not been chosen yet since we have several already lined up based on which group forms. The one thing for sure is that it will be an island and it will be facing the sea and beachfront and be gorgeous. Kate is picky as hell about groovy energy and won't settle for anything less than pretty and peaceful. We might end up in the postcard perfect Cyclades group of islands with white-washed walls and winding towns, lanes filled with bright bougainvilleas and the usual fresh fish tavernas by the seaside. Check out the Cyclades group of islands to get an idea. If not there, we may end up in the charming Saronic group of islands for maximum sight seeing since they are all so close to each other, and Athens. But the point is, Kate will do all the leg work and prescreening to pick the best possible place with the right combination of factors so no more exhaustive researching and tedious legwork for you to plan a trip and no more traveling alone or with the whole fam in tow= actual relaxation and recharging for you.
Will it be warm in September? Yes, the average temperature there in September is in the 20s celsius in the day and drops to around 19C at night so bring a light sweater. (The ideal packing list will be emailed to you along with a ton of other helpful, take-the-stress-off-of-you information in the Welcome Package once you register.) The water will still be warm enough to swim in from the extreme heat it absorbed in the summer reaching highs of 45C frequently. So September will be pleasantly warm but not sweltering and the added benefit will be that it will be quiet and peaceful as it is the end of the tourist season, August being its peak.
Everybody gets their own room, bathroom, and sea view* at a boutique hotel Greek-style, included in their retreat registration. Everything is arranged with your comfort and restoration in mind so all you have to do is get your fabulous hiney over there and Kate will meet you and get you settled in.
Imagine yourself overlooking the sea as the sun goes down with a light breeze coming off the water after a day of learning, sunshine, and lounging as you feel your inner juiciness go up a day by day. The waiter arrives and the platters of food start going down one by one and you start eyeing your fellow workshoppers plates and think maybe you'll order that too; it all looks so good. Fresh fish cooked over charcoal, classic Greek salad with creamy feta, crispy golden calamari, savory moussaka, lacy and tart marouli salad, baked lamb and potatoes, wine, and more. For dessert, some of you are talking about walking into town to get fresh loukoumades, the tempting doughnut-like balls covered in honey and cinnamon, others are holding out for flaky baklava from the nearby bakery.
The next day you decide you need a pick me up and everyone has been raving about the sinful triple-cream ice cream. How good could can it be? You try it and moan. This is a diet-killer but totally worth every. single. lick. What better after icecream say the Greeks than a mid-afternoon coffee on the beach? Try the freddo cappuccino. It might sound Italian, heck maybe it is, and that's good. Iced espresso over superfatted, super whipped milk-froth sitting like a cloud on your caffeinated mid-day heavenly respite. Jeez, how much weight are you going to gain? None. Because you will be walking and swimming all day long and burning more calories than at the gym and never even notice. Perfection.
The next morning you have to choose between creamy, real Greek yoghurt with honey and pistachios and a side dish of fresh fruit, or coffee along with a slice of lemon olive oil honey cake (it sounds weird but is yummy), or spanakopita and fresh squeezed orange juice, or maybe... so many things to choose!
Greeks love their food and it shows. Even a quick and cheap lunch of souvlaki is delicious and healthier than our standard fare. Eat meals leisurely and let food be thy medicine with the world renowned healing mediterranean cuisine.
This diet has something for everyone, and any dietary needs you have can be accommodated: vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, gluten/dairy/sugar free.
This retreat is designed to:
The best way to make quantum leaps in personal growth is to come from the dreamstate, the relaxed, larger mind, so we chill, laugh, sleep, and dream our way to muchos productivity.
Like all of Kate's retreats and workshops, she will gauge the group's energy level, specific interests and challenges, and cocreate with the group to have the optimum balance between growth, restoration, and fun. She also has a few surprises in store to keep it fresh and lively. We'll play it by ear to maximize the weather and our grooviness. The key thing here is that the learning will be focused on the experiential so lots of guided visualizations/meditations/ceremonies/daydream journaling, and on the customized lessons and discussion in the small group size to address the strategic and practical obstacles that are holding you back. Prepare for lots of dreaming, comfy classes, and lively discussions with laughter and "huh!" moments. The details will be emailed to you as soon as you register but here is an idea of what our week will look like in terms of pacing, chill time, and fun.
Day 1: Orientation, relaxation, opening discussion over dinner

*those who are a great fit for this trip but need a bit of a price break can get a shared room for a bit cheaper. Make sure to request this in your application.
Aside from the registration bonuses available listed later, here is the everybody-gets-it no matter when you sign up awesome, gold standard inclusions:
"Welcome Package" with handy packing list, surrounding traveling ideas for side trips, common Greek phrases, complete traveling directions and anything else that can be helpful, so stress is taken off you from the time to register to when you get home
Sail boat ride for us all (if weather permits which it should because it's still mostly sunny, blue skies in October in Greece!) and if not possible then some other juicy local treat like a trip to ancient site or agrocultural spot
A Greek dinner feast for our final night, with old school Greek classics and fresh fish for us all
And perhaps not the sexiest but the most results-oriented offer ever: a ton of learning material before the retreat even begins in the form of a mini online program! This is amazing since most retreats charge more and then have you scramble to write down all your notes and give nothing like this before. Instead, let's get the headier stuff out of the way before the trip so when you arrive we can focus on the experiential, the dreaming, the restoring ourselves juicy parts. There will be audio and pdf downloads so you can start weeks before the retreat or on the plane ride over, doing as much or as little as you want and need. Then when you arrive, you already have a workbook to jot down notes in and audio tracks to keep you on track in between lessons and even after the retreat for the most gentle but consistent support.
